Casa Quickie: Ashes, Ashes

Cleaning out the fireplace this Spring? Don't toss those ashes. Instead, spread the ash on your garden, or dump it into your composter. Adding wood ash will up the potassium content in your garden, which helps create plant proteins, and is also needed for nitrogen-fixing bacteria to produce nitrogen on the root nodes of legumes as well.

I hate to ask this but does anyone know if the duralogs you get at the grocery store are good for the garden too? That's what I burned this year--I think they are compressed sawdust.
